Mojo129/ Fab get together!

Spent the most wonderful day yesterday with two lovely ladies, Lesley and Alex (more of this later!)
 This is one of the cards I made whilst there following the sketch over at Mojo Monday.  Just scraping in for this week! 
The image is a gorgeous little stamp from Stampin Bella which I got at The Craft Barn, coloured with a mix of Copics (thanks Lesley) and Promarkers and layered up using the delish new Basic Grey ranges, Kioshi and Green at Heart - I loves them, I do!!  Wanted to make an easel card so stretched the sketch down across the bottom of the easel - the sketch was perfect for this- and I rather like the effect!!  Butterfly punch was Alex's - I have gotta get me this!!!

As I was saying, this was made at my long-time, best matey, Lesley's  house where we were also joined by the lovely Alex, both uber talented and fab friends.  Nearly didn't make it as DD no 1, Holly had gone out with friends the night before, decided to stay over, forgetting that said friend had left car parked in our driveway and hence blocking my car in the garage when I came to leave!!  To say I was not amused was an understatement and with less than savoury language in the air, managed to get to Lesley's about an hour late, DD and friend having got a cab back here with their tails between their legs and a flea in their ears!! 

Alex gave Lesley and I one of these gorgeous little cases, isn't it divine!! Love the image too - it's a fab Penny Black stamp and coloured perfectly by Alex, who is a wonderful colourist!  And it was filled with some super goodies - flowers, ribbon, choccie eggs!! Yum!!

Lesley gave us a fab watercolour paper pad which I can't get for love nor money where I live so was thrilled!!!  And of course, we played in her wonderful craft room and with her wonderful goodies!!

I had a great day Julie! Thank you for coming and thank you for my super Easter basket proudly displayed on my blog. This card looks almost as good on your blog as it does in reality. It is a stunner; coloured to perfection and beautifully designed! Love Lesley

Hi Julie, I had such a fabulous day with you and Lesley, thank you so much! The gorgeous basket sits proudly on my desk and so far I only sampled one of the choccies... *lol*
Still love your card and think your idea for taking the layout onto the base is great. Stunningly beautiful and so you! Love it!
Hugs, Alex
